Another solution would be to replace the inner roadway with a second roundabout, connected only to the avenue at a slight angle.

Instructions would be "keep left, then at the roundabout continue straight",
or "keep right, then at the roundabout take the nth exit".

I've used nested roundabouts with success before.

I'll tell DDOT that they made an error designing Dupont Circle. Which I'm sure they will enter in volume 37 of their compendium of poorly designed streets.

Or you could fix it by having a single no name segment exit that node, and then fork into the two roads. So the RA sees it as one numbered exit, and the prompt will still carry the same names do to the no name segment properties.

Script updated to v1.14. Chrome version will appear shortly.

  • Show 0th exit errors in red, without HTML tags leaking through
  • Only show 'exit left' for leftHanded countries and 'exit right' for not leftHanded

I'll fix the HTML tag, but I feel that the entry point is the correct place to put it as that is where the driver hears the instruction.

[offtopic]
0th exit is an error in the map - you must not have two exits from the same node on the roundabout. I suggest the 'inner roadway' should connect to 'Massachusetts Ave' a few feet before/after the roundabout, and not to the roundabout itself.

Tim, thanks for the great script.

I found a couple of bugs when testing a route through a roundabout: take a look at this screenshot. First, the directions say to take the "0th exit" from the roundabout at the point of entry, not exit; second, the map label at the point of entry to the roundabout has a visible HTML tag.

  • Follow rules for navigation instructions for unnamed segments
  • Don't show "continue" instructions for name change
  • Refactored code and general improvements
Feedback and bug reports please.

iainhouse -- thanks. That's the workaround I used.
PesachZ -- So obvious -- once you point it out. Doesn't have to junction anything, be saved, or even be in ones editing area. Only there to generate an endpoint. Thanks.

Another slightly more time consuming but accurate workaround is to create a new short helper segment, so you can choose where the mid point will be that is passed to livemap. Ensure that midpoint is nearest to the segment you want to start/end on. You can manipulate this segment for the desired result. You don't need to worry about the segment being connected to anything or interfering with results, since the results are drawn strictly from the segments in the live map.
